The classic fairy tale Rapunzel, made famous by Brothers Grimm in 1812, came from the earlier fairy tale Persinette, written by Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force. It was originally published in 1698.
The old classics continue to inspire illustrators through the ages, they never pass away.
Here is my illustration depicting the famous well known verse "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair, so that I may climb the golden stair". With joy, it feels like dancing across the page using colour. Time stands still.
